Rented by the bedroom ($125/night) or by the house ($375/night 3 bdrms), this charming 1877 home is nestled in oak trees and features 12-ft ceilings, 3 bedrooms each w/ private bath, modern kitchen, 2 fireplaces, and front porch w/rockers and views of meadows, wildflowers, wildlife & birds!
The Maetze is an 1877 home situated in the heart of the Barnhart Q5 Ranch and Nature Retreat, a 706 acre working ranch. The house can be rented by the room or by the house for 2 night minimum. Each bedroom has private bath. The house features 2 fireplaces, living room, fully stocked kitchen (cook your own meals) and outdoor cooking as well. Guests are invited to enjoy the ranch's manicured hike/bike trails, fishing ponds, and abundant bird and wildlife. Birding is our forte, as we're located on the migratory path and our natural habitat and feeding and watering stations draw in large varieties of species. A Club Cart is available at $25/day rental as well.
The 17 acre guest house compound consists of 3 houses within 100 feet of one another. Each house has its own firepit, outdoor grill, and porches, and guests have access to the entire 700 plus acres.
My husband and I live in a separate home about 1/8 mile from the guest house compound. We are available to guests should they need us. We like to give our guests a tour of the ranch so everyone feels comfortable moving around the place. If interested, we offer nature hikes to teach children and adults about the local habitat and wildlife. Guests are also welcome to join us in our cattle "roundup"!
We do not provide meals but do provide you every tool you need to make your own - indoors and out.
We want guests to enjoy the place! General respect of the wildlife and livestock is requested. Smoking is allowed outside the homes, and ashtrays are provided on all porches. One dog per family, please, at $25./per pet per visit.
